BUILDING BACKBONE
Discipline in action for adults and children.

“Self respect is the fruit of discipline” -Anonymous

Healthy discipline during childhood and adolescence builds vital psychological strengths.  Through sound discipline, qualities such as self control, inner motivation, independence and thoughtful decision making can all be developed.

The psychology of values and discipline can empower you to act with clarity and confidence when guiding and nurturing a child.  This can influence the way you think and feel about yourself as a parent.  Solid knowledge about parenting styles and positive discipline techniques can widen your repertoire of actions and help to manage nagging doubts that could from time to time keep you and your child stuck in unhelpful cycles.  

Come join us for a practical short workshop.

PLAY: SERIOUS BUSINESS FOR YOUNG AND OLD.

“You can learn more about a person in one hour of play than in a year of conversation” Plato.

The need to play is a natural and spontaneous force within us. It has been observed in every culture since the beginning of time. Mental health professionals have observed that play is as important to human happiness and well being than love and work (Schaefer 1993). Play enriches our learning, growing, our bonding and especially our healing. The study of Play is an intriguing and positive science.

You are invited to come share in a workshop about the magic of play! We shall talk about play as a natural and necessary life force, it’s functions and neurological implications, the various powers of play and we shall explore practical techniques for engaging in and facilitating healthy play in children.

Care and Courage – the science of Compassion

Compassion is a stress response. Being compassionate sets in motion strong physiological processes that are uncomfortable. These processes are also connected to courage and motivation. This is quite contrary to the popular romantic idea that compassion is a warm and fuzzy feeling of harmony and calmness. It is also distinct from empathy.

Research studies in the field of compassion has seen unprecedented growth in the past two decades. Findings consistently indicate that compassion, but especially inner compassion is a powerful vehicle for change. This is true across diagnoses and therapeutic modalities. This seems to be especially true when healing from trauma and shame.

The ability to learn inner compassion is key. We will discuss how fear of compassion, how it is measured and how it contributes to present and future suffering. Come and join us as we learn and share about sustainable compassion, what compassionate presence look like and most interestingly, the upward cycle of compassion and courage.
